About the prize
Development in Practice is now offering prizes for practitioners and early career academics from the Global South on two themes.
Two prizes of $US 500 will be awarded for 2022 for the top paper in each category and 12 months “free to view” for the top papers in each category will be offered.
The categories are as follows:
1. Gender and intersectionality. Papers should be academic articles that focus on research including:
a. Current and emerging barriers that prevent or stymy the progress for ongoing change in gender justice and more equitable gender relations in a specific development context.
b. Current and new practices and thinking that are making an impact in transforming gender relations.
2. The development effects of COVID-19 on communities in the Global South. Papers should be academic articles that focus on research including:
a. How has COVID-19 changed business as usual for better or for worse (for example, something for the better is more emphasis on local leadership and capacity).
b. Are our responses to COVID-19 and development research/practice proactive or adaptive/reactionary? How to reach a middle-ground or good practice?
Please submit your paper through DiP’s online processing platform https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/cdip.
All papers submitted in 2022 will be considered for the prize. We will contact you if your paper is shortlisted.
